Re:"equal treatment"
by Rockoon (1252108)

Until that "equal treatment" extends to marriage. Then they suddenly oppose equality.

Adding a vocal minority to an existing elite class of people that enjoys special rights and privileges does not create or increase equality. It create inequality. It decreases equality.

Re:user created dictionaries aren't dictionaries

It might be a pseudo-english term invented by german speakers.

That is actually a pretty concise definition of "English."

Many people think it's impossible to lose weight. However, this is only the case if you are not educated. Like many other things, you can succeed when you're educated on the subject. The best way to lose weight is to gather up as much helpful information as possible, and the article below will help get you started.

Reducing your daily caloric intake will be an effective means of weight loss. Reduce your daily calories by 500 calories.

Exercising to get fit is an important part of your weight loss plan. Try to get around 30 minutes of exercise each day. You could achieve this by joining a club or a gym that has the activity that you want to do, like tennis or dancing. This is a great way to make new friends. People in your fitness group can also provide support when you're having trouble reaching a goal or learning a technique.

Walnuts can help you fight cravings and lose weight. One study revealed that eating walnuts with breakfast kept people feeling fuller than those who didn't have walnuts. Nuts can be a good snack food.

Doing your cardiovascular exercise when you first wake up in the morning and before you eat is a great way to help yourself lose weight. Research has shown that cardio done in this fashion will burn 300% more than if you did cardio at another time.

It may seem as if going on a fad diet is an ideal way to get a jump-start on losing weight. However, if you really want to lose weight and keep it off, it's better to stay away from dietary fads. Do not fall for diets that only have you eating three or four items, as you will not be able to stick with it and its nutritional value is optimal. Even worse, it does not teach you how to eat better. The best diet plans teach you how to eat healthy for the rest of your life.

Re:I'll just wait for 6G
by pr0nbot (313417)

Digital comms is soulless and overrated anyway. It doesn't have the warmth, vibrancy or resonance of analogue. I use a solid granite radio phone with a golden antenna so I can really capture the subtleties of my interlocutor's voice.

I forget where I read this but it rings true. "The female body is a thing of beauty that has been a focus of the arts since the dawn of civilization. The male body is lumpy and hairy and should never be seen by the light of day."

Re:Easy

After all if someone is found to be naked on photo.. what is the problem really?

Agreed. Being found naked in a photo should be about as embarrassing as being found naked in the shower. Yeah I only want my wife to see me naked, but if a nude photo of me were to exist and to get circulated around the office, it's more shame on my co-workers for peeping than on me for being seen.

Re:Easy

> more shame on my co-workers

It's not the shame so much as the PTSD.

It's news because it illustrates that, as much as Linux users like to throw stones at Windows, they too are vulnerable. Anyone can pick through the source and find security holes what can be exploited - perhaps even much more subtle ones than anyone would ever find on Windows.

I prefer to throw at the users. The chance to hit the culprit is so much higher.

Re:Libraries are one thing Amazon is not
by AthanasiusKircher (1333179)

The fact that the public library is an actual place is important.

Another facet of having an actual place is that humans orient themselves around physical spaces in ways that just aren't the same electronically.

One of the most important ones to me is the bookshelf, particularly for non-fiction books (which is mostly what I read aside from classic lit). No matter how good Amazon's "products like this one" or "products other people have purchased" lists get, they still generally don't offer the same kind of discovery sensation of browsing on shelves for me. Amazon is very good at showing me books that other people like me already know about. It is TERRIBLE at showing me more obscure or older related items that people like me don't tend to know about already, but which might be just as good resources (or even better). Even a relatively small public library will often have some intriguing random discoveries for me when I'm browsing in an area devoted to a particular subject. And a large university is often a revelation.
